Drinking Old Ghoul-Aid!

I still have a few packs of last year's Kool-Aid Ghoul-Aid Scary Blackberry drink mix. So, I thought I'd whip up a pitcher-full and see how it tastes. What could possibly go wrong? I'm drinking expired Kool-Aid out of a mug I bought at a yard sale.

 It wasn't so bad! I lived through it. :)

The Solway Firth Spaceman

When i was a kid in the 70s I loved everything about Bigfoot, UFOs and other unexplained phenomenons. I lived around the corner from the local library and spent a lot of time there looking through books and checking them out. One of the UFO books I checked out multiple times had this photo in it:

I remember being scared of this photo as a child. I'd forgotten all about it until a year or so ago when I saw a color version of this picture somewhere on the interwebs.

Halloween (1978) At The Nightlight Cinema In Akron, OH

After trick-or-treating ended Saturday night, me and the missus went to the Nightlight Cinema in downtown Akron to see the original Halloween on the big screen. The Nightlight is a cool little independent theater. They sell alcohol and cupcakes at the concession stand. I thought about ordering a sasparilla, but I really don't know what that is. I only know about it from Bugs Bunny cartoons.

Anywho, I sat down with my popcorn and Diet Coke and watched Halloween for the first time in my life! It was a hoot! It was so cheesy and fun, I loved it!

Before the movie started, a three man band called Analog Fog played a tribute to John Carpenter movies by playing the theme music from the following movies:
1. Escape From New York
2. Christine
3. Assault On Precinct 13
4. Halloween

They sounded great. I recorded the first song they played (Escape From New York), but I wish I would have got Halloween! It was spectacular! Sorry about the videon quality, it was really dark in there.

Tricking & Treating

Saturday night was trick or treat night in Akron, OH. It was a nice night for this late in October. The temp. was 70° and no rain. It's usually in the 40s this time of year. I made 50 treat bags and ended up giving out 45 of them. I was expecting worse.

Marcia Strassman, R.I.P.

From Deadline  --

Actress Marcia Strassman has died at the age of 66 after a long battle with breast cancer, according to online posts by two long-time friends, singer/actress Cher and director Bob Weide. Though she acted in a wide range of TV shows and feature films, she was best known for her roles in the TV show Welcome Back Kotter and the comedy feature Honey I Shrunk the Kids and its sequel, Honey I Blew Up the Kids. 

Strassman was born Apri 28, 1948 in New York City, and was initially a singer in the late 1960s with some modest local success, most notably with The Groovy World of Jack and Jill and The Flower Children. She also had a few TV roles, including three episodes of The Patty Duke Show. She left show business for a time before returning as an actress in a recurring role as a nurse in M.A.S.H. 

In 1975, Strassman had a breakout role in the TV hit Welcome Back Kotter, opposite comedian Gabe Kaplan playing his wife Julie.

She worked steadily thereafter, most notably in roles on several TV shows, including Tremors, Third Watch, Providence, Noah Knows Best, The Rockford Files and as a voice-over artist on the children’s animated show Aaahh!!! Real Monsters. She also played the wife and mother opposite Rick Moranis in the hit comedy feature Honey I Shrunk The Kids and its sequel, Honey I Blew Up The Kids. 

Strassman died Oct. 25, after a seven-year fight with breast cancer.
